Yoga in a Park
The beauty of working afternoon shift is the free time I have in the morning! This morning, I explored the park near where I currently stay and had a 40 minutes yoga session before a drizzle spoiled all the fun! The benefit of having a park just 5 minutes walk away includes yoga at a park, evening stroll and a walk (or run) in a park!
The corner I found for my private yoga session!
I was discipline enough to only manage eight rounds of sun salutation, six rounds of Warrior one and four rounds of Warrior two. You will notice that the rounds dwindle as I progress as the inertia kicks in as I progress. Haha. It was followed by random stretches for a bit.
The view I had all to myself.
The fun benefits of practicing yoga in a park are (1) enjoying a dose of vitamin D from the morning sun, (2) breathing in fresh clean air compared to stuffy and humid air, (3) taking in the spirit of carefreeness and ignoring all the strange stares from passerby and lastly (4) taking in a private moment of self awareness with a view.
The not so fun parts of practicing yoga in a park are (1) finding a quiet and private spot without ants or bugs, (2) lack of mirror to correct your poses and (3) the need to clean up your yoga mat thereafter.
It has been a fun session and I will surely do it again!
